Chris Williamson: Brexit Means Leaving Single Market

Top Corbynista Chris Williamson is the latest Labour frontbencher to be caught on the hop after the party’s sudden u-turn on single market membership. Here he is setting out the old line in the clearest possible terms:

Now his party wants to retain single market membership for years after leaving the EU: exactly what Williamson rightly said is impossible. Utterly non-credible…

Williamson’s not alone. John McDonnell has been caught out too. What a mess…
